"Cognitive Surplus" and Community Theatre

This video presents an interesting point of view about leisure and entertainment. He talks about "Cognitive Surplus." The presentation is about Internet technology, but I think it applies to theatre as well.

The part that struck me as being so relevant to Community Theatre was his idea of a "triathalon." Not only are we "consumers" of entertainment, but we also want to produce and to share.

So, who was cuter, Ginger or Mary Ann?
